“Sleep sweetly, tender heart, in peace!
Sleep, holy spirit, blessed soul,
While the stars burn, the moons increase,
And the great ages onward roll.
Openness of the Heart
We hope the stars are burning bright and August’s full moon is illuminating your path, wherever you may be. As our global tribe, we find peace in the awareness that we are held by a universal grace. Pausing for a moment, we will all look towards the night sky this week and see the full moon teamed with Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and Venus, stretching across the southern horizon from east to west, in power and solidarity.
As humans on this shared path, at times we find ourselves pulled by the familiar forces of anxiety, ego, and miscommunication. In this space we have the opportunity to pause and reconnect with the innate goodness and tenderness of the heart.
Tsewa is a Tibetan word that describes this openness of the heart. Tsewa can be understood as the state of being open-hearted toward others in a way that allows others to in-turn experience and spread positive emotions such as love and compassion, thus creating an upward spiral for all of humankind.
With your tender open heart, you can connect to the hearts of others. You can influence outcomes, you can open minds, and you can enact real change.
May we all open, soften and come together in goodness.
With A Deep Bow Of Gratitude,
Your SYI Family

SYI Alumni Stories
Sinclair Fleetwood, Guatemala, June 2018, SYI Alumni
Finding the practice of yoga and meditation saved my life. At the end of my 20s, I was a hot mess. I was 70 pounds overweight, out of shape, working in a career path that didn’t feed my soul, and abusing alcohol to escape the pain of living in a body and life I hated.
